Contemporary House Idea With Grass Roof RD House
Contemporary House Idea - Grass roof ideas from a contemporary house in one of a hill in Jarabacoa, Dominican Republic, designed by VASHO named RD house.
Grass roof is one alternative to decorate our house exterior or landscape to be seemed more beautiful and cool, some contemporary houses put the grass roof on flat and can be used as an outdoor space where kids play, gathering, or lounge. Besides, grass roof at the same time also has multifunction to increase the comfort of occupants inside the house stabler temperature and less sound pollution from outside. Grass roof has also been applied in various types of home-style classics to modern or contemporary. A lot of contemporary houses have been built and put grass roof on top that we can use as an additional reference to the idea of ​​applying grass roof.

RD House by VASHO:

“The programmatic challenge: design a house that allows 18 people to fit comfortably within 500mt2 (including terraces). Open spaces, characteristic of the local architecture. All of the bedrooms have their own bathroom, study and/or library and living room-dining room-kitchen all in one space. The house will be a second home to use intermittently in the summer.
modern grass roof houseThe architect recognizes that one of the greats challenges will be the difficult access and limited horizontal surface of the property, most of it having a slope of 45 to 70 degrees. That is why an extremely precise survey was made to be able to work from the foundations to the roof gardens. The natural level curve of the face of the hill influenced not only the structural reinforcement of the job but also the programmatic distribution of spaces. This can be seen, for example, in the continuity of the natural surface of the hill in the living room of the house.
grass roof house designBurying the house is proposed as a visual action. Hiding the overall volume of the work to the existing natural geography to cushion the impact of the volume to the eye upon arrival, being conscientious of the paradisiacal surroundings, but always seeking to make the natural surroundings appear from the interior before the user: “Disappear to make appear”.
A large percentage of what materials of the “Habitable Refuge” is rock extracted from the excavation of the property. Its visible concrete walls were molded in pine formers which, along with the high quality native wood, delivers a rustic environment which cushions the contrast of texture-color with its surroundings without abandoning the “modern” look.

The act of burying the house in the hill not only touches the esthetic aspect but also the sustainable aspect. The green roof allows for more insulation as far as direct heat from the sun is concerned. Its rear face is in contact with the rock of the hill creating a cooling phenomenon known as “thermal inertia” that consists of a basic physical action; “The temperature of a body of lesser volume equals that of a greater volume when these two bodies are in contact.” To make this possible without the constructive damages that may arise, highly engineered waterproofing methods were used. In other word the refuge does not need a mechanical cooling system. It is a contention wall in itself.
From the general understanding that where there is good administration there is energy efficiency; in other words the consumed load decreases, is that we have incorporated Domotics to the design, with the purpose to touch an ecological approach with the house. Domotic is an intelligent system that basically integrates a structured web which allows control of the lighting scene, entertainment components (sound, temperature regulation of the Jacuzzi from another location) and security (solenoid valves, cameras, alarm system, etc.) from anywhere within the home or out of the home, generating comfort and energy saving.”

Stone House by Von Trong Nghia Architects:

“This torus-shaped stone house is located in a quiet residential quarter beside the way to Ha Long Bay from Hanoi. A rising green roof and walls composed of subdued color stones in dark blue create a landscape, which stands out in the new residential area.
The rooms surround the oval courtyard, making a colony-like relationship with each other. Circulating flow runs around the courtyard and continues to the green roof, connecting all places in the house. This courtyard and green roof compose a sequential garden, which creates a rich relationship between inside and outside of the house. Residents discover the changes of the seasons and realize their wealthy life with the nature, thanks to this sequential garden.
To create a wall with smooth curvature, cubic stones with 10cm thickness are carefully stacked. Consequently, the wall performs the play of light and shadow. Massive and meticulous texture of the wall generates a cave-like space, which recalls the image of a primitive house.
The family with 2 young children has been enjoying their living in the house. They sense each other and deepen their communication, rounding and rounding in the house.”

Contemporary Tropical House by Wallflower Architecture + Design

Contemporary Tropical House

Contemporary Tropical House
Wallflower Architecture + Design, an Singapore studio has totally design an amazing home, it called the Travertine that was finished in 2011 located in Serangon, Singapore.
Adapting to the site environment, this contemporary tropical house could be our reverences how to build fresh aired home, sustainable ideas implementing, eco-friendly green inspiration in tropical climate.

Travertine Dream House by Wallflower Architecture + Design:
“The client’s brief for this house was simple. Functionally, to maximize usable area and to incorporate greenery. Aesthetically, to use travertine copiously as an architectural finish. Inspired by the Italian urban-scape during his travels, so too would travertine express this house.
The house is organised as two parallel blocks connected by a glass enclosed bridge. The separation between the two blocks allows daylight to stream down to basement spaces. Thick travertine walls and large overhangs are placed on the western side to limit heat gain from the harsh afternoon sun. The entry, living spaces and bedrooms are arranged longitudinally to take advantage of natural cross ventilation and daylight. In order to intensify land use without ending up with an imposing structure, the four storied house has one level sunk into the ground and the other three set away from the access road.
To accommodate as much green and ‘blue’ space as possible, the gardens and water bodies are spread throughout the house. The living and dining areas on the ground floor face a swimming pool and a fish pond. The basement’s entertainment and guest rooms are open to the sky, with natural light and ventilation coming through a sunken moss garden courtyard. The third storey flat roof is both a recreational deck and a roof garden.
The arrival experience is orchestrated by several layers of travertine wall that suggest a tenuous threshold between the outside and the inside. The detailing is deliberately minimal and precise to enhance the simplicity of the massing and the juxtaposition of solidity and transparency. The narrow blocks that house the living area, the thick stone cladding, multiple levels of gardens and water bodies ensure that the house remains cool in the tropical environment, well ventilated and washed in soft daylight.
The three dimensional composition of voids, layers and solids creates spaces for both quiet reflection and family interaction, something for each mood and moment.”

Sustainable Home in Connecticut by Joeb Moore+Partners
In 2010, Joeb Moore + partners designed a sustainable home completely, this sustainable home is called the 173 Park Street Residence in New Canaan, Fairfield, Connecticut.

Sustainable home project was implemented above 5300 square foot to this contemporary home styled. Luxurious shape and fresh sensed interior are very interesting points of the home. Beside those two points, sustainability was applied proudly to increase the home value.

173 Park Street Residence by Prutting & Company:

Philosophy and Goals

The goal of the townhouse is to construct a “state of the art” building, incorporating contemporary and “green” technologies and products directed by world-class design.  By incorporating these features with a prime location in the heart of downtown New Canaan, this project caters to the luxury home consumer valuing in-town convenience with modern amenities and features.


This project has a modern, flexible floor plan with all the amenities.  There is a large, multifunctional lower level with a zoned apartment.  Amenities include three fireplaces, central vacuum and high-performance appliances, and a spa master bath including a steam sauna and a whirlpool.  This project also has an extensive roof top lifestyle program including an exterior deck with a hot tub, cookout center and a fireplace.  There is an elevator encouraging this program which travels from the lower level to roof top.


The building is supported by a concrete foundation with a structural steel frame and poured concrete decks. There is also interior steel and engineered lumber wall framing.  The modern geometric exterior is achieved by zinc panels and cedar wood wall cladding and detailing.


The townhouse achieved LEED Silver certification by its use of several “green” technologies including thermal massing radiant floors with central air conditioning.  The use of photovoltaics supplements electric and solar-heated water.  Water is also recycled through a roof water collection system and sprinkler system. Lutron lighting control systems and wiring for motorized window treatments create a comfortable living environment in addition to the alarm system and stereo system incorporated into the project.

Windows & Doors

Natural lighting is also factored into the project as a means of being ecologically responsible. High performance glazing is used with European Lift & Slide door unites and casement windows. Also incorporated into the project are a roof sky window, custom 2” interior doors, and high grade hardware.

Millwork & Finishes

The interior detailing and crisp joinery gives a clean, modern look using natural finished Sycamore Millwork, European ceramic/porcelain tiles, Caesarstone countertops, and European oak engineered wood flooring.


Central to creating a specialty home is the well designed garden and hardscape plan, with custom designed decks, patios, water features, and a fountain.


This 5,300 square foot home with a cost of $4 million is a smashing, elegant 21st century building with intelligent and well-conceived design.”
